[Cob] Why is Cob good? Want some hard data?

Exponential growth is a little understood phenomena that is at the  
heart of why Evans, Smith and Smiley, [ The Hand Sculpted House ] and  
many others started advocating building with cob. The link below has  
everything [and nothing] to do with why cob and other  earth building  
technologies are good for us for the earth. There are eight 9 minute  
video segments of A physics professor explaining the effects of  
exponential growth,  over varying,  relatively short periods, on  
consumption, production, population, fossil fuel use etc. The simple  
math with which he lays out the future will change the way you think  
about the holy grail of Amerika, GROWTH! It is not theory, it is math  
using widely published figures from universally accepted sources. The  
"most important video" part is a bit off putting till you listen to a  
few minutes of the first video. Be sure not to skip the second one.  
The financial news lately just makes this information all the more  
important and relevant.
